Hotels & Resorts Lanai Travel Tips

The Most Secluded Island

Discover two luxurious resorts, two championship golf-courses, and outdoor adventures unique to Lanai's distinctive landscapes. If you want to get away from it all, get away to Lanai.

This charming island is home to just over 3,000 people, making it the perfect place for rest relaxation, rejuvenation, rediscovery and romance. From beautiful Manele Bay to the bumpy road and scenic views of the Munro Trail, you'll find a wide range of activities to please just about everyone. Golf on two challenging courses or go snorkeling in crystal clear waters at Hulopoe Beach. The resorts also offer excellent services for your indulgence.


Facts: Population 3,193, Area 140 sq. miles

"Hawaii's Most Enticing Island." Formerly known as the "Pineapple Island," almost the entire island was, until recently, a Dole Company pineapple plantation but is now phasing in tourism, and is home to two world class resorts.

Garden of the Gods (Virtual Tour)

Rocks and boulders are scattered across a crimson landscape as if some divine being had placed them there as a sculpture garden. Adjacent is a self-guided nature trail leading through the Kanepuu Preserve, a unique dryland forest hosting some 48 native species, including the endangered Hawaiian gardenia.

Shipwreck Beach (Virtual Tour)

Kaiolohia Beach or "Shipwreck" Beach is the best place for beachcombers looking for "treasures" from beach glass to drfit wood to glass floats. The strong currents and coral reefs have caused many "shipwrecks" although the Liberty Ship from World War II was purposely sunk on the reef and still remains visible.

Hulopoe (Virtual Tour)

The bay at the foot of the Four Seasons Resorts Lanai at Manele Bay boasts a jewel of a white-sand beach, picnic facilities, shady palms, brilliantly-hued fish, gentle waves for swimming, diving and snorkeling. The waters of Hulopoe Beach are protected marine preserves, and its snorkeling and diving spots are among the best in Hawaii. It is also common site to see spinner dolphins close to the shoreline and humpback whales during the winter months.

Polihua Beach (Virtual Tour)

Strong currents make this a tough spot for swimming but nothing beats Polihua Beach in the seclusion department.

Lanai Arts Program, Lanai City

Learn to paint beautiful and colorful "masterpieces" like Van Gogh, Monet and other artists. Instructors will teach you how to paint in acrylic on canvas, which is the best souvenir of your visit to Lanai!

Stables at Koele

Saddling up on horseback is a fun and exciting way to experience picturesque Lanai. Wooded upland trails, hidden valleys that are home to axis deer and other wildlife, and open vistas that view neighboring islands are all part of the unique and timeless landscape one can enjoy by horseback. The Stables at Koele instructors will teach you how to ride horseback on the most gentle, well-trained and kid-friendly horses on Lanai.

Koele Golf and Croquet

Challenge mom and dad to a round or two of golf at the Lodge at Koele's 18-hole Executive Putting Course, the miniature version of the world-class Experience at Koele golf course. Or croquet anyone? Under the large banyan trees, play croquet or lawn bowling on the lodge's wide-open green lawn.
